Thanks to a donation from Verizon Wireless, the library is adding a new crate to our Community Crates program: Lego Robotics! This new crate will focus solely on Lego Robots, and to celebrate we are having a Lego Robotics series in February. Teens who sign up will build a simple robot that has a crane, and then we will introduce varying challenges each week for the teens to solve. We are limiting sign-ups for this program to 12 teens who will work in pairs, so call 657-8290 to sign up today!
We're switching days for our computer science focus, so starting in February come to the lab on Thursdays to work with our amazing volunteer Michael as he helps teens explore computer science! Learn how to program and control neopixels, write programs for arduinos, mess around with Lego Robots, and more. If you have any interest in coding or any computer science topic, this is for you! No sign up is required, just swing by the lab and start messing around.
Learn how to code in Python and make your own games and programs! Classes will be non-linear, and our mentor Brody will work with you teaching you based on your skill level. There will be class themes, but you can show up and ask Brody about any topic that interests you or you need help with. Python is also an easy to learn language, and a great way to get into programming and computer science. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get programming!
Japan Club is done with its winter break and is back in session every Wednesday at the library.
Join us for epic adventures and world building mayhem as we strive to tame the wilds of the West Marches! Help build and cultivate a city, explore the wilderness, and defeat terrifying monsters as you learn the ins and outs of 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons. You don't need any previous experience with the game, and you don't have to commit to a weekly session. The West Marches campaign is designed for drop in/drop out play, so swing by the TECH Lab on Saturday and see what adventures are underway!
Fortnite is now on the Nintendo Switch, so the TECH Lab is going to be hosting a couple hours of Fortnite mayhem every week. Swing by the lab to hang out and try one of the best games around!
Teen Advisory Group
Teens who are 13 to 19 years of age can apply to be part of our Teen Advisory Group - the TAG. The TAG advises the library about programs for teens, helps promote services, and volunteers at the library.
